Human serum beta2-microglobulin levels: correlation with total serum IgG and placental IgG transfer in HIV-infected and non-HIV infected individuals.

Abstract

The acquisition of maternal immunoglobulin G (IgG) is fundamental to the immune defence of the neonate. The receptor responsible for IgG transfer across the human placenta has also been implicated in the maintenance of IgG levels in the circulation. beta2-microglobulin is part of the Fc receptor (FcR) that has recently been purified from the human placenta… (More)
